Sunny naps on the shore, cool misty mornings on the deck, and lazy Sunday afternoons with the family in a quiet place all your own: a secluded beach getaway is what you're looking for, and Merlot Bungalow has everything you need! This breezy, tranquil home just steps from the beach features two bedrooms, a full bath, and a gorgeous view of Seneca Lake.

As soon as you step through the door, the vaulted ceilings, soothing colors, and stunning view of the lake lend this home the feel of a luxurious coastal cottage. The brief main entryway leads directly into an 830 square foot semi-open floor plan. On the left is the kitchen, furnished with all the necessary appliances, amenities, and storage. Across the bar-style peninsula, the kitchen opens to the spacious living room, making the space perfect for entertaining close friends or hosting a family gathering.

The living room is naturally lit in the day by skylights and a fantastic wall-length sliding door opening to the back deck, and a small gas stove provides the space with both heat and a touch of rustic charm. Directly off the living room to the right are two cozy bedrooms, each with its own queen bed, and one of the rooms offering its own winning view of the water. Near the bedrooms you can clean up after a long day on the beach in the shower of the full bath.

Walk through the sliding doors from the living room onto the wide main deck, boasting an impressive view of Seneca Lake.  Five steps off the deck is a patio with large grill, a stone fire pit, and ample space for entertaining. Descend 17 steps toward the lake is the boat house, housing two kayaks with life vests, which you are free to use to explore the lake. You may launch these from 112 feet of your own personal shoreline or lounge on the private 30-foot dock.

Craving something flavorful? Merlot Bungalow is located just minutes from dozens of the most highly rated wineries in the world-famous Finger Lakes wine region, such as the award-winning Fox Run Vineyards. This home is also 15 minutes from the Keuka Lake Wine Trail and 30 minutes from the Waterloo Premium Outlet Mall and Del Lago Resort & Casino. If the theater arts are more your style, a short drive north will bring you to Geneva's historic Smith Opera house for a show and dinner at one of the many nearby downtown restaurants. These are only a handful of the experiences available to you that will make your time at Merlot Bungalow the perfect lakefront escape
